Guys, a few questions:
When people talk about ColdFusion, do they refer to CFML or CFScript, or both ?
Depends on the context. They could be talking about the overall engine/platform. But if someone were to say “the application is written in ColdFusion” then I’d say they meant “both”.
It’s mainly a matter of personal preference. A lot of people prefer cfscript because of it’s sleaker syntax. But before CF9, there were many things you could only do with CFML. CF9 expanded the cfscript support a lot. So if you prefer you can now do almost anything in cfscript.
cfscript is easier to write and to read, that’s its main advantage
